There is nothing wrong or illegal about talking with a doctor regarding CBD. In fact, that is the first this one should do.
While CBD has a good safety profile and is generally well tolerated, there is the potential for CBD to interact negatively with other medications and for other side effects. (1)
Multiple small studies of the safety of CBD in adults have shown that they are able to tolerate a wide range of doses. (2) There is currently little data on the types of drug-drug interactions that may occur between CBD and other pharmaceutical drugs, but CBD is an inhibitor of cytochrome P450 enzymes. (3) This is how many pharmaceutical drugs are metabolized, and ONLY ONE OF MANY REASONS why patients should talk to their doctors about whether any of the medications they’re taking are metabolized by the cytochrome P450 system before taking CBD.
It is very important that patients and consumers be forthright when having a discussion about. There is nothing wrong or illegal about discussing medical cannabis or cannabinoids with a doctor. The First Amendment protects doctors’ ability to discuss these topics with their patients. Doctors are accustomed to patients bringing ideas to them about treatment options and preferences, and CBD products that have the potential for life changing benefits should be no different.
“First LEARN about CBD, then EARN its health benefits.”
Studies show that increasing number of consumers are confused about picking a safe and effective CBD product. They are finding it hard to obtain products that not only meet strict farming standards but also meet appropriate consumer standards.
